Islington Tribune writes up the 'Dream to Change the World' exhibition

The 'Dream to Change the World' exhibition has had a full and informative write up recently in the weekly independent paper Islington Tribune.

Dream To Change the World Exhibition: Comments

The launch of the GPI's exhibition 'Dream To Change the World took place on Thursday 21st May.

It was a great success, both gratifying and humbling for all involved in putting the exhibition together.

The GPI wishes to thank once again the Heritage Lottery Fund, Islington Council and the wonderfully supportive team at Islington Museum.

We have been greatly encouraged by the comments written by initial visitors to the exhibition. Please see some of them below:

 

DREAM TO CHANGE THE WORLD: THE LIFE & LEGACY OF JOHN LA ROSE

Roots and Flowers: The Life and Work of the Afro-Cuban Librarian Marta Terry Gonzalez

On Monday 13 April 2015 New Beacon Books and The George Padmore Institute jointly hosted an evening of celebration and discussion about the life and work of the Afro-Cuban librarian Marta Terry Gonzalez with scholars Abdul Alkalimat and Kate Williams. The story of this committed revolutionary who  was instrumental in the development of her country's national library was the vehicle for Alkalimat and Williams to look at Cuba while posing the questions: What is Afro-Cuba? What has it contributed since 1959?
